Instead of asking why Dems are drifting so far to the left...

 
why isn't anybody asking why Repubs have drifted so far to the right?

I know, rhetorical question, but damn...the rightward drift keeps on going.

Probably because the MSM isn't stupid or dishonest enough to ask such a factually-challenged dumb question.

I'd say that's a false premise.

Republicans hold essentially the same positions they have for years. The left has adopted positions they could never have gotten away with, say, 10 or 20 years ago.

The left has moved so far left that it seems to them that the right has moved to the far right.

To them, anything that is not totalitarian communism - complete with gulags - is FAR RIGHT.
Help keep America beautiful...deface a liberal.

The Democrat and Republican parties are simply the left and right wings of the same bird of prey.

The road to freedom is paved with dead liberals.

That's a stupid allegation the primitive made.

My whole life, I've watched the Republican party.

And it's slowly shifted left, to about where the Democrats were at during the Kennedy administration.


Democrats: A bunch of rich people convincing poor people to vote for rich people by telling poor people that other rich people are the reason they are poor

Pretty much. There is scarcely an issue on which the Ds haven't gone leftward, sometimes even reversing their position to do so (e.g. same-sex marriage).

Air is Free, that's why we need a carbon tax.

I will give up my guns when the liberals give up their illegal aliens

We need a Bull Shit tax to make the Democrats go broke!

Agreed. The way I put it is they’re so far to the left, they think the left is the right.

And some of you are friends and you're going to call, and you're going to say, 'Mr. President, please, we can't take it anymore, we can't win anymore like this, Mr. President, you're driving us crazy, you're winning too much, please Mr. President, not so much, and I'm going to say I'm sorry, we're going to keep winning because we are going to make America great again."

In physics, a red shift is the appearance of objects that are moving away from the observer.

That would explain all the MAGA hats.
